On Saturday, May 12, Stacy Garaca toted her two Shih Tzu’s, Pebbles, 6 months and Gracie, 4 years, to Caldwell Mill Animal Clinic’s annual Spring Fling in honor of PAWS (Pets Are Wonderful).
Clients, employees and visitors enjoyed free grilled food, cotton candy and many other deserts. For those who did not come so hungry, there was face painting; games with prizes; a jump house for the children; live music; and a demonstration on dog training, complements of Sola Gratia Training by Abigail Sinclair. There was also information on how to care for your pets’ needs, including dental care and grooming.
The most exciting event for everyone was the dunking booth. Participants had the chance to throw softballs at the booth target which, when hit, would plunge a Caldwell Mill veterinarian into a soapy, wet tank. For $20, clients could automatically hit the bulls- eye with their hand, sending a vet splashing.
All proceeds raised went to the Greater Birmingham Humane Society.
“My dogs are like my children. I would not trust anyone else with them besides the veterinarians and staff at Caldwell Mill,” said Stacy Garaca. Garaca also spoke with Molly Moseley about Pebble’s first haircut. Moseley will take over as head groomer for Caldwell Mill at the end of May.
